Smartlink Town Service Travel Card

If you travel on Ulsterbus Town Services, then using your Smartlink Travel card to store unlimited travel offers great value. The more you travel the more you save!

You can choose to add one day, one week or one month’s worth of unlimited
travel to your card. A day’s travel is valid for one day from first use (not purchase). A week’s travel is valid for 7 consecutive days from the date of first use (not purchase). A month’s travel is valid for one calendar month e.g. from 25 February to 24 March inclusive from the date of first use (not purchase). Once you start using your Travel Card,
you can top-up with a further day, week or one month.

You can top-up your Travel Card onboard a bus or at an Ulsterbus Station with one day or one week’s travel. You can only top-up with one month’s travel at Ulsterbus Stations.

You can also top-up with one day, one week or one month’s travel at any PayPoint Agent.

When you top-up your card, any additional days extend the validity of the card from that date e.g. if you have 3 days left on your card and you top-up with a further 7 days, your
Travel Card immediately becomes valid for 10 days from the date you top-up, and not 3 days plus a further 7 days from the date of first use of newly purchased travel.

When you top up your card, any additional days extend the validity of the card from that date e.g. if you have 3 days left on your card and you top up with a further 7 days, your Travel Card immediately becomes valid for 10 days from the date you top up, and not 3 days plus a further 7 days from the date of first use of newly purchased travel.

Hotlisting Your Card


After purchasing a new card you should make a note of your Smartlink Card number.

Your Smartlink Card number is printed along the front of the card and is also printed on all corresponding receipts issued.

The Smartlink Card number is needed to cancel your card if it is lost or stolen.

If your card is lost or stolen it can be cancelled or ‘hotlisted’. To hotlist a card, you must report the card lost or stolen immediately on Tel: 028 90 66 66 30.

It takes two working days before a hotlisted card becomes deactivated. Translink can then prevent unauthorised use of the card and a hotlisted card presented for travel will be confiscated. Hotlisted cards CANNOT be reactivated.

Translink CANNOT prevent the unauthorised use of lost or stolen Smartlink Cards until they have been reported by the user and hotlisting completed.

See terms and conditions for how to claim a refund on the remaining journeys or validity period on a hotlisted card.
